Tax the ge at varrock but also add a tax free ge at priff to incentivize these wonderful city. Also add a 1 time 10m payment to remove ever seeing the ditch again. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

Tax the grand exchange at varrock? Explain? Who would pay what percentage of each item in taxes?

Add a grand exchange that isn't taxed? No support. You already have one and the game doesn't need 2 of that atrocity.

A 1 time 10M pmt to remove your own visibility of the ditch? If it wouldn't impact what everyone else saw in the game, I could support that.. unless, if I was following you (for example) and you didn't see it but I did and you could drag me across it anyway.. then I wouldn't support that.. there are better ideas for money sinks.. taxing the grand exchange is a better money sink than removing the ditch for that fee if it simply enabled luring people to the wildy.

So I guess more info is needed before I could support any of these ideas.

How so? How would a second GE locked behind quests that bots can't abuse not help?

The ditch does nothing to stop luring. Everyone knows where the wilderness is. Also, it's your option to follow others. Keep spite voting it and they'll eventually force it in like #F2PTB, watch.

Taxing the ge is nothing more than an attempt to force skillers to worship merchants.

The problem with the ditch is not seeing it, but the effects. Those effects are what stop trade lures and unless you can prove that that will never happen, the ditch effects will remain.
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

If you are trying to trade someone you automatically move to them. That is a core part of the engine and if the jmods had figures a way to stop it, they would have been all over the rs news bragging about it. If they do not change that, then the choice to follow the person you are trading is not yours.

No, it's an attempt to push it away from that. The GE is automated merching.

And you tested that on my main and failed miserably. Your "effects" are delusional.

Merchants used to be kings of the game. They had all the money and that is what they want back. The ge took that power from them. It limits their ability to control the game.

I don't know why it failed when I tried it. I never did it in the past. As other said, its very possible that I did it wrong or that you did something that prevented it that most people don't know.

No, they didn't. The GE made it so that PvMers had all the money since they could dump their resources more efficiently.

Your conspiracies about a trade lure are fake. It doesn't exist.

yea, your lack of knowledge in the game is so obviously, just as your hate for anyone that doesn't play the game the way you do. That means everyone.

Why did Andrew do the ditch when he hated it. He had no choice when it came to stopping the trade lure, which was a scam. It would harm innocent players and many quit when they lost all the money they had earned in months or even years.

You have never explained why they have not removed it if the only reason was to stop a lure that did not exist.
